FRACON_MayBlog2_AcousticEngineer_FortLauderdaleFL-

Why You Need an Acoustic Engineer for Your Studio, Venue, or Business

The acoustics of a room can make or break the experience inside. If you’ve ever been inside a cathedral, you’ve witnessed how crisp the sounds are and how choral voices float through the air yet the initial sound resonates for many seconds.  On the flip side, we’ve all been in restaurants that were so loud that we couldn’t hear what our friends were saying. A space like that could have used the help of an acoustic engineer.

If you’re a musician with a recording studio, or if you’re building a theater or venue, you’ll also need optimal acoustics for musical purposes. As an acoustic engineer based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and beyond, we’ll share what acoustic treatments achieve and how they will improve your establishment’s sound. Learn more below!

3-incredible-things-you-can-do-with-home-automation

Enrich Your Fort Lauderdale Lifestyle with an Automation Installation

So how does home automation play into real life? As technology experts, Frangioni Media performs custom automation installations in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and cities worldwide. We’ll share exciting ways smart technology will enhance your routine below.

How to Get Stunning Sound for Your Home Theater

Surround Sound: How It Works & Why It’s Superior 

In film, sound is just as integral to storytelling as the visuals. Try to imagine Jaws without its signature ‘dun-dun,’ Harry Potter without its heartwarming theme, or The Breakfast Club without the classic fist-pump to ‘Don’t You Forget About Me.’ Whether it’s spaceship sound effects or explosions in World War II, quality audio makes immersion ten times better and is the epicenter of a world class home theater. 

So, if you’re interested in home theater services for your Los Angeles, CA, home, be sure to make audio a priority too. While a soundbar or internal speakers may seem like enough, you’ll be greatly depriving yourself of a cinematic experience. Learn how surround sound works and what you’ll need below.
